Skycliffe - HÜMÜH Monastery Retreat

The Skycliffe Experience


Spiritual Practice


Forest Temple Light Mandala Meditation Garden


Come to the Quiet

Wisdom Master Maticintin located Skycliffe in a remote, beautiful, natural setting so that it could offer its guests the rare and healing refreshment of an atmosphere of gentle quiet in a pristine, natural setting.

The grounds lend themselves to pauses for quiet reflection. Here and there, you will discover meditative landscape features like the Whirling Circle, Labyrinth, Edge Walk, Karma Shedding Pit, and Mandala Meditation Garden around the Golden Stupa. All these offer settings for meditative exploration. Hiking trails along the River Walk and the ascent to Amitabha Vista lead to spots with natural views that uplift the spirit and relax the mind.

Throughout the seasons, the distant chanting of the resident monks radiates outward from the Forest Temple. If you like, you may join in for chanting and meditations whenever you wish. You may also ask to use the private Meditation Hut.

Free meditation instruction is available on Sundays at 3:00 pm..
